(at around 1h 23 mins) In Deveraux's parents' house, the clock on the mantle reads 8:20 when it is first shown. Several minutes later, the clock still reads 8:20. See more »
Colonel Perry. We killed an innocent man.
What do you suggest we do, Woodward? Let that reporter run off with one of our UniSols?
We can't just cover this up. We have a moral obligation to tell the truth about this.
I thought you were more clever than that, Woodward. This whole goddamn program is off the shelf. Do you really think for one second those wimps at the Pentagon... would allow the regeneration of dead soldiers, American soldiers?

The new Region 1 Special Edition DVD features an alternate ending: Andrew Scott guns down Luc Devereaux's mother before their big fight. After Luc wins, he is shotgunned by his father before Dr. Gregor explains that those weren't his real parents. Then, agents with Dr. Gregor gun down Luc until the police, a news crew and a UniSol tech arrive to save his life and arrest the doctor and his men. Finally, there is a voice-over by Veronica with scenes of Luc reuniting with his real parents. In the voice-over, Veronica explains that Luc lived for two months, enjoying his family's company, but refusing any medical treatment until he died of natural causes. See more »
The premise and the cast outweigh the storyline and that's the real shame about this film. You have two big names in the action scene of the 90s and an up and coming mega director. The real issue with the film is the lack of a coherent explanation for the storyline. The film has a large action scope and that car chase scene later in the film looks incredible on 4k. There was a better film to made here and it's a shame they didn't exploit the use of the two leads. Van Damme is very quiet and lacks the usual charisma that comes with his films. Let's be honest, the two leads don't have strong acting traits, but they do maintain presence. The film could've been different and grittier, but something was not right in the pre-production and production of this film.
